  • Elementary Campus

    At the Elementary Campus, Each grade conducts its own community service project. Recently, the fourth graders' ecology project spread campus-wide in its efforts to bring awareness to recycling and waste reduction. Various grades also maintain a school garden for the pleasure of the whole community. Additionally, students help parents in all-school community service projects such as the Food Drive in the fall, the Toy and Book Drive during the holidays, and the Clothing Drive in the spring. The goal with our youngest learners is to engage students in meaningful activities whose results are evident to the children.
  • Secondary Campus

    Eighth grade students engage authentically in their Community Leadership class to address external challenges including poverty, disabilities, genocide awareness, animal rights, environmental projects, and beyond.

    In ninth through twelfth grades, students are required to demonstrate a commitment to community engagement and action through participation in ongoing school-based community projects or off-campus activities approved by the Director of Experiential Learning. All students are required to complete a Community Engagement Proposal in ninth grade to describe their commitment to projects connected to specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
